During the last decade, growing efforts have focused on human papillomavirus (HPV) detection using liquid hybridization, conventional PCR, and real-time PCR-based methods to increase the overall proportion of patients participating in cervical cancer screening procedures. We proposed a new general HPV DNA real-time PCR on the Mx4000 (Stratagene) and(More)
MalF is one of the two integral inner membrane proteins of the maltose-maltodextrin transport system. To identify functional regions in this protein, we characterized a collection of malF mutants obtained by random mutagenesis. We analyzed their growth on maltose and maltodextrins, the steady-state levels and subcellular localization of the mutant proteins,(More)
We report on a newborn boy with pronounced hypotonia, cryptorchidism, minor facial anomalies, congenital heart defect, neurologic anomaly, deafness, renal anomaly, and bifid uvula. The patient has a de novo proximal interstitial deletion of chromosome 15 reaching to band q14, larger than that usually seen in Prader-Willi and Angelman syndromes.
